Hi there all, I have now been on retin A gel 0.025% for 2 months and am not too sure whether it is working or not. I have had days where I would be completely clear (apart from the red marks of course) and then go a week breaking out which I can deal with but I am now getting cystic like lumps on my neck where I hadn't even been applying retin a which makes me think that my acne is spreading. I had been on tetracyline but was still breaking out on my back (where I was not using retin a) so I stopped that (I had used tetracyline a couple of years ago but I think it was not working this time) I don't really want to go on minocycline cos it will just come back worse when I finish the course!!! I'm thinking of going to see a derm but I'm pretty sure that they will just put me on mino like the doc suggested and take me off the retin so I won't know if it may have worked if I had left it longer!! Only one way to find out I suppose..............
